Times Square Bomber
A truck with ‘bomb’ materials in it was found in a smoking truck in times Square on Saturday, May 1st. The truck was subsequently towed to a forensics lab. Napolitano states it was an amateurish attempt and that there are ‘a lot of cameras in the area’, perhaps impying that this surveillance equipment will help lead to the apprehension of the culprit- although as we find out later, it doesn’t.
“Duane Jackson, a 58-year-old handbag vendor, said that he noticed the car at around 6.30pm and wondered who had left it there.
“That was my first thought: ‘Who sat this car here?’,” Mr Jackson said, adding that he looked in the car and saw keys in the ignition with 19 or 20 keys on a ring.”
Now, why would someone leave a key ring with 20 keys on it in the ignition of a truck he is attempting to blow up in Times Square with some firecrackers, gasoline, a bag of fertilizer and a Mickey Mouse alarm clock?
One thing false flags all have in common is the trail of oddly glaring evidence left behind at the scene by the purported perps: usually passports or other photo IDs, manifestos betraying suspects’ political agenda, Holy books revealing their religious persuasions, etc. All so convenient for the DHS.
In recent years, with the availability of an abundanc of information on the Internet, a larger and larger portion of the public has come to scrutinize ‘terrorist’ events, checking and cross checking facts and evidence from media reports and other sources, and finding that official versions don’t add up and are full of oddities. Perhaps, knowing that we wouldn’t buy the ‘Oh look, they left behind their driver’s license” line, whoever was behind this false flag thought a ring of keys leading to the scapegoat’s house would be better choice of planted ‘evidence’.
As we shall see, the keys did come in handy.
A woman who was evacuated from a nearby hotel stated that she and other evacuees left the building calmly.
“Nobody seems angry or upset about it. After 9/11 people have learned to listen up and to do what they are supposed to do,” she said.
Ah yes, in this 9/11 world people have learned to shut up and go with the program. How true. Well, for the most part. And every article that covers an incident where public safety is threatened must make the obligatory reference to 9/11 just to remind us to stay afraid.
“Time Square Bomb: The Growing Threat of Improvised Explosives”
Growing threat? Are we supposed to believe that making half-assed bombs out of gasoline and firecrackers is the new craze with the terrorist crowd? I guess we are. According to this article, New york and everywhere else in North America may as well be right up there on the list alongside Kandahar and Baghdad as a place where improvised explosive devices may be sitting around in the ice cream truck parked on the corner.
According to ‘experts’, expertise in making IED is ‘spreading like wildfire across the globe with technical data and training widely shared among terrorist groups’ and these groups are learning new bomb-making skills faster and faster. Obviously, the source and means of spreading this information could only be attributed to one thing: the Internet. The article doesn’t say as much, but the MSM has already told us all too often where terrorists share information and why changes need to be made to the Internet for the sake of our security.
By Tuesday, May 4th, a Pakistani suspect had been apprehended at Kennedy Airport.
“Law enforcement officials say the suspect recently returned from a trip to Pakistan and bought the 1993 Nissan Pathfinder used in the failed car bomb three weeks ago and paid cash.”
Having visited Pakistan is a recurring theme. Scapegoats are always said to have visited Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iraq, etc, which shows they may have ties to international terrorism. Of course, it is always possible that these people just went to these countries because that’s where their family lives. But in any case, it turns out convenient again for the DHS. Other evidence of this man having ‘international ties’ to terrorism included phone records that showed he called Pakistan and the presence of things in his car such as a piece of paper. Maybe this paper was from Pakistan. Maybe it was a gum wrapper with Arabic writing on it. That would be a dead giveaway. Figures he would be from Pakistan. The government has an election coming up soon and it would be good to get the public more on board with the US military presence in that area.
On motive, White House spokesman Robert Gibbs stated: “ I would say that was intended to terrorize, and I would say that whoever did that would be categorized as a terrorist,”. Logical enough, but the question is who does this apply to, exactly?
As for the surveillance camera, they were at this point revealed to have shown a 40-ish white man changing his shirt in a nearby alley, which had of course made him a suspect because everybody knows that terrorists are obsessive about frequent wardrobe changes, but that it turned out later that he was probably just doing so because he was hot. Looks like the Keystone Cops are teaming up with the DHS
Ever notice how surveillance cameras catch a lot of strange things on tape but never do much to prevent crime or help, save lives? Case in point: the recent stabbing of a homeless man in New York who had come to the assistance of a woman who was being robbed. It was all caught on tape, including the many pedestrians who walked by his body over the course of the next few hours, one of them taking the time to snap a picture with his camera but not to call 911.
By Tuesday evening, the AP reported that the suspect, now named as Faisal Shahzad, had ‘admitted’ to being the terrorist in question, having trained at a camp in Pakistan before making the truck bomb that was found in Times Square.
Shahzad apparently had an MBA and a house in the suburbs, which had recently been foreclosed on and this misfortune may have been his motive for attempting to set off a truck bomb in the middle of Manhattan.
According to the article, other evidence of Mr Shahzad’s terrorist leanings included a report from a real-estate broker he had worked with in 2004 that Shahzad
“had expressed a dislike for former President George W. Bush and his policy in Iraq”. Well, there you go.
Shahzad was apprehended and removed from “a Dubai-bound plane at Kennedy Airport that he had been able to board Monday night despite being placed on the federal “no-fly” list.”
This is the part I don’t understand. Shahzad had no criminal history or known involvement with terrorism or terrorist groups. He came from a wealthy family and was well-educated. The only things he had going against him before this incident were:
– being from Pakistan
– losing his home
– expressing dislike for the government and their foreign policy.
Was that enough to get him on a no-fly list? Or was he placed on that list for no reason other than that he was going to be a designated scapegoat for the NY truck bombing attempt of 2010? Abdul Mutallab, the so-called ‘Undie Bomber’ was also on a no-fly list yet was also allowed to board a plane, although in his case he was actually allowed to fly, not just board. Or could it be that this was done deliberately for the extra added dramatic flair of removing him from a plane which he had already boarded, instead of quietly taking him aside at airport security? Just a thought.
Let’s get back to that key chain
“Keys found in the SUV’s ignition fit the car Shahzad left at the airport and a home in Connecticut.”
Just as I expected. How convenient.
Another strange thing was that he quit his job with a marketing company in May 2009. Then, around the beginning of September, he went to Pakistan, returning on February 3, 2010. Why would you quit your job if you were having trouble making mortgage payments as it was? And why would you then go on a 5-month trip instead of finding another job to look after your mortgage and family. No wonder he lost his house.
And finally, despite all the talk of terrorism in the early reports, Shahzad was read his Miranda rights and charged not with terrorism, but with:
“trying to detonate a weapon of mass destruction, attempted car bombing and obstructing interstate and foreign commerce by trying to kill and maim U.S. citizens”
this is another thing Shahzad has in common with the Undie Bomber. Although both were described as ‘terrorists’ in the MSM, neither were treated as terrorists or charged with terrorism. They were both charged with criminal offenses. When Abdul Mutallan was read his rights after the Christmas 2009 incident, there was some outcry over why he had not been treated as a terrorist, and some apology over this ‘mistake’. But now we have two such cases where an unlikely culprit (Shahzad was described by neighbors as quiet but apparently normal and had no criminal history) engages in an act deemed as a terrorist attack, which results in a failed bombing involving makeshift explosives, and ends with the suspect being read his rights and charged with criminal offenses but not terrorism. And of course, let us not forget about the trail of keys Shahzad left behind.
Since his arrest, Ms Shahzad has been ‘cooperating’ very nicely with the authorities (aka singing like a bird). These guys always do spill the beans as soon as they get busted. The Taliban or whoever was supposedly behind this could learn a thing or two from the mafia or even the Hell’s Angels when it comes to hiring guys who don’t know how to keep their mouths shut. Apparently, the Taliban put out a video on Youtube claiming responsibility, but the DHS has determined there is no evidence for this being true. Why would the Taliban put out such a video and how would the DHS know it wasn’t true. Or maybe this is all part of the False Flag plan to get the public to associate the even with terrorism.
And there’s more! The guy who bought Shahzad’s Connecticut home, I guess the Connecticut home to which the key was left on the keychain in the car, said he was visited by the JTTF just after he bought it! So the JTTF WAS on to Shahzad- or he was some kind of an agent.
My verdict: another Manchurian candidate. Just kidding. But he could have been a hired patsy or agent. I wouldn’t rule that one out.
